Comment
Language comment
Roth (1910:94) describes the 'Koko-rarmul' as one of the 'more important Princess Charlotte Bay Tribes' in the Saltwater and Morehead Rivers region. He includes a wordlist of ten words compared with 'Kokowarra' Y80. Oates and Oates (1970:202) record 'Kokorarmul' as an alternate name for 'Jawa' Y74. They record 'Almura' as an alternate name for 'Rarmul (Koko-)' (1970:208). Sutton's early fieldnotes (1970:10-11) record Mitchell McGreen, a speaker of Almura. Sutton reports this language is listed as an alternate name for (Agu-) Rarmu, but Mitchell McGreen has not heard this name. Sutton speculates that Almura is a dialect of 'Gugu Yimidyir' Y82 displaying influence from a language with typical Peninsular loss of initial consonant.
